  It's GREAT!
  It's OKAY, but...
  I like the old look better.
  Is that the best you could do?
  Who cares, I just want to get at the information.

Anyone know where to get the Gislaved tires on-line in US or Canada.
The dealer should be a large one that would get tires with studs installed in factory.
Any leads in the next 2,3 years would be helpful.

Check the dealer locator herehttp://www.gislavedusa.com/. Looks like almost EVERY Volvo dealer and there was a link to Vermont tire http://www.vttireonline.com/ or you can send them an email.

I used to go to a shop that was bought by http://www.mktire.com/. The first snows I ever bought from them were Gislaved Frosts. When they wore out I switched to Nokian. For MANY years in all the tests Gislaved and Nokian went back and forth on a 1st and 2nd place rank. Then I changed cars and Gislaved was not available in my size. Nokian seems to have more size choices and pattern options. Not necessarily a good thing all the time but all the Nokian choices I tried were all good. One of my friends had the Nordfrost 2 and didn't like them as much as the original but still WAY better than all seasons. From looking at the Gislaved site that seems to be a serious limitation is size choices.


How about this place for you GTATIRES.CA

Nokian says that they strive to be the best. However, one official mentioned that they might not be #1 in every test but consistently having good products will uphold the company's reputation.

Tests are useful to me but I have seen variations in tests, both performed by different organizations and even the same one. It's not a matter of choosing the #1 in the tests because all tests have many factors they tests. Many times my own criteria are similar to the tests but sometimes a #2 tire seems better for me.
